After almost 2 years of delay, TNG RFID will finally be operational on the PLUS Highway from 15 January 2022 onwards!
Here is what you need to know…
TNG RFID @ PLUS Highway : Originally Scheduled For April 2020!
TNG RFID is an electronic payment system that uses an RFID (radio-frequency identification) tag that is affixed to the vehicle’s windscreen or headlamp, and linked to the user’s Touch ‘n Go eWallet account.
The TNG RFID Tag is linked to the user’s Touch ‘n Go eWallet account, and whenever your vehicle approaches a toll, an overhead scanner its encrypted code and automatically deducts the fare, allowing you to pass without stopping.
This system was originally meant to be implemented on the PLUS highway in April 2020, but was repeatedly delayed until now…
TNG RFID Will Finally Be Operational On PLUS Highway!
On 16 December 2021, the Malaysia Ministry of Works (KKR) announced that the TNG RFID system will be activated from 15 January 2022 onwards for Class 1 light vehicles from the Juru toll in Penang to the Skudai toll in Johor Bahru.
This is part of the Ministry’s Intelligent Transport System (ITS) blueprint, which includes the Multi Lane Free Flow (MLFF) toll system.
With the RFID system enabled, motorists will be able to pass through RFID tolls at up to 30 km/h, with the convenience of automatic top-ups.
Don’t worry if you don’t have your RFID tag yet. PLUS highway tolls will still support Touch ‘n Go cards and SmartTAG. Support for these legacy payment methods will be gradually reduced to allow for more RFID lanes.
You can purchase the TNG RFID tags for RM 35 at these two official online stores :
Please buy only from the two official TNG RFID online stores above. We do NOT recommend buying from third-party stores, because they may not be authentic.
